Better than we imagined

  • 4 of 5

We LOVED this house! It was a perfect home base for us with plenty of room for our local friends and family to come and visit for a few days. The location was great for day trips to Rainier and we absolutely loved the yard and wraparound porch!

The only downside was somewhat to be expected as the home is located in the woods. The first night, we noticed mouse droppings in a couple of the cabinets and one little guy scurried across the kitchen floor a few times. He disappeared within a day or so (perhaps the caretakers' cat got him), but it was unnerving to know that there was spoor in the cabinets and even in some of the cooking utensils. we popped everything in the dishwasher, but, it would have been nice for it to have been cleaned thoroughly before our arrival.

That being said, the rest of the home was pristine and LOVELY. Our kids had lots of toys and books to play with and we would definitely like to stay again! Would HIGHLY recommend this home to friends!

Nice place to stay as close to the National Forest and Mt. Rainier Park as you can get

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the property and were very, very close to the boundary of the national forest. Mt. Rainier park is just a bit further down the road and very easy to access. The house is comfortable, clean, and nicely workable for a vacation spent day hiking and touring in the park. We had a great time and would recommend staying here. The one challenge can be the need to plan ahead with your food purchasing as it's about a half-hour back our to Enumclaw for a full grocery store. Definitely worth the time to plan your menu, however, as you're in a beautifully quiet location in return.

Excellent property.

  • 5 of 5

I rented four houses for our hiking group and this was by far the most utilitarian.

Excellant Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent mountain home. We hiked everyday at Sunrise on Mt Rainer. The property is less than 30 minutes away from Sunrise. The home was in perfect condition with a lot of amenities. We have AT&T cellular service. We were able to pick up signals down at the mail box and at the Ranger station at the Sunrise entrance.

Comfortable stay near Crystal Mountain

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in the cabin. The cabin is roomy, and it has everything you need. Also the location is perfect if you want to go skiing in Crystal mountain in winter. Also kids can sled next to the house, and they had great fun!

Mike and Melody were responsive to questions via email and phone while we were there. They have been very helpful to solve the problems.

Thank you for allowing us to use this property!
